Dairy-Free Cherry Apricot Ice Cream

July combines two of my favorite things; it’s National Picnic Month and Sunday is National Ice Cream Day. The perfect time to enjoy dairy-free Cherry Apricot Ice Cream.

Combine two of the season’s favorite flavors; raspberry and sweet cherry for a jewel-toned jam. Today I continue with my seasonal cherry experiments.

Preserve the sweet cherry harvest to enjoy all year. If you, like me, love sweet cherries you probably try to stretch the season.

Sweet Cherries in Honey-Vanilla Syrup

It’s time for Washington State stone fruits again! One of the best things about living in this part of the country is summer stone fruits.
